6 ways to stretch your coronavirus stimulus check

LadyG comes from a working class family, so I know how to be broke; I meant frugal.

Trust me when I tell you that I am very well prepared to educate you on making do when times are hard.  

Now then…

Most of the things that I am about to share in this post, I learned as a kid, and perfected when I went away to college!

Can you say, “canned Spam?”

Best believe, LadyG knows a little sumthin’ about the thrifty life.

Anyway, before I get sidetracked, allow me to define today’s terms AND use them in a sentence à la grammar school.

Terms:

Frugal:  Characterized by or reflecting economy in the use of resources.

Whereas, in this context, the word “economy” is defined as: thrifty and efficient use of material resources

Broke: penniless

Terms used in a sentence:

One must become frugal in order to avoid becoming broke!

YAAASSS!

LadyG has earned an A+ !

And so,

Today’s audio is a structured ramble, if you will, that details 6 things you can do, as we say in the South, to pinch a penny til it hollers; thereby stretching your coronavirus stimulus check!

If you like this post, please share it and don’t forget to holler at me in comments 🙂

LadyG loves you 🙂

Sunday Dinner with Lady G: Love The One You’re With!

corn-and-crab-chowder-a-la-lady-g

If I recall correctly, there is an old song that exclaims, “If you can’t be with the one you love, you gotta love the one you’re with!”

Who am I kidding?  I don’t need to recall anything, I know Stephen Still’s jam backward and forward!

YAAASSSS!

Well today, I had to love the store-bought corn with crab chowder I was with.

Trust me, by the time I’d finished putting a little affection and ‘Gwin spin’ on this chowda, every diner at my dinner table was satisfied!

So here’s what I did to make things more interesting.

First, I grabbed a random brand of corn and crab chowder that I purchased a few days ago.

Side note:  In general, the brand doesn’t really matter because I always doctor it up with my own blend of herbs, spices, veggies, fruits, meats and magic✨

Next, I simmered the chowder in a saucepan and seasoned it with a bit of salt.

Since I had some avocado and shrimp on hand, I decided to invite them to the party.

Basically, I sautéed the shrimp with that Hoodoo that I do 🙂

Just kidding!  But not really 😉

Anyway, after fully heating the chowder, I spooned it into a bowl and topped it with the sautéed shrimp.

I then added the avocado that I mentioned before.

Lastly, in order to truly set it off, I added black pepper.

Et voilà!

Or in the words of the great Andy Griffith, “She’s done and done!”

Now, I recently purchased a small bowl of gumbo which I also plan to love with that Gwin spin!

publix-gumbo

As I think about it, I’ll probably add some extra spices, crawfish and andouille sausage-or whatever else I fancy.

In case you hadn’t noticed, the primary point of this post is to encourage you to work with what you have in your pantry in order to make your store-bought soups, stews or chowders better.

Hence my reference to Stephen Still’s masterpiece!

Wait for it…

YAAASSSS!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend my loves!

Lady G

I think I’d like to hear The Isley Brother’s take on this whole thing 😉
